Those who attended the Hammermen Dinner 2018 will have undoubtedly met members of the Master Court, including Chris Vine, as they tried to convince you to buy either the Hammermen Tie or the lapel badge, or both. In a mix of good and bad news Chris has resigned from the Master court as he has the opportunity to build a house in Kent after a number of year planning. We wish Chris and his family well in following their dream and to reassure them there will always be a welcome from the Hammermen of Glasgow.
It would be difficult to find someone in the UK let alone Scotland who is not aware of the great engineer James Watt. Some would argue that the industrial revolution the UK benefited from would not have been the same without Watt’s innovative work to increase the efficiency of the steam engine and many other innovative engineering solutions.
In case you have missed the many media reminders this year, 2019, is the bicentenary of the death of James Watt and to mark this significant anniversary an event entitled Watt a celebration is being presented by the Glasgow Incorporation of Hammermen. The event is being held on Friday 31st of May 2019 in the Trades Hall and it will be a tribute to Watt in music and song together with food and drink. In line with the aims and objectives of the Hammermen this event is in aid of the important work carried out by Primary Engineer® to encourage, and inspire, the next generation of engineers.
